    I was just thinking that maybe one fine day Trump will set another record - first former US president to drop the soap in a prison shower. Cheers!

    That is probably one of the only things that would make me happier to hear about Trump. :)

    I believe you said he wouldn't be indicted.

    No one thought he was going to be indicted after Cohen's attorney testified...Bragg told them to stay home for days and was talking about their scheduled month off. 
     
    This case has statute of limitations issues. It is charging for a crime that election regulators said does not exist.

    The statute of limitations was tolled by Gov. Cuomo due to COVID and, if the person to be indicted moves out of state, the statute is also tolled.  Trump's residence was changed to Florida.

    Yes covid entered 1 yr. 
    But the law says the defendant must have been "continuously " out of the state or unable to contact (he was always contactable). We know Trump as President still made regular trips to NYC and was still a resident until 2019. Even after the Presidency he still made weekly trips to NYC. 
    A judge will have to rule on the meaning of "continuously out of state" but 
    all that is contingent on Bragg being able to prove a campaign finance crime. Where 
    election regulators have ruled did not happen.  
    To be campaign expense, it must 
    be an expense that would exist without the campaign. ie. 
    Would he have paid for a NDA regardless of being candidate? History, shows that he would have

    Here's the deal on the Statute of Limitations as reported by The New York Post:

    "The charge usually has a five-year statute of limitations for prosecution as a felony, but that restriction can be extended if the defendant repeatedly moves in and out of the state within the time period, as Trump did during his presidency, the Times said.

    New York’s statute of limitations was also extended by more than a year because of the coronavirus pandemic."

    Trump is now facing an estimated 34 charges of falsification of business records, believed to relate to payments to both Stormy and the former Playboy model Karen McDougal. Pretty sure a few of those charges will stick. Cheers and happy weekend!

    Again....paying for a Nondisclosure agreement is not illegal. Just ask our politicians they do it all the time. (Sleezy not illegal) 
    They are NOT campaign finance issues because they are not a campaign expense.  
    To be a campaign finance expense it has to be a expense you would not have had if 
    you were not campaigning.  A haircut is not a campaign expense. Trump has a history of paying for NDAs long before he was a candidate...so not a campaign expense. And he did not use campaign funds to pay for them or repay Cohen.

    Trump's lawyer just announced that because Trump has been riddled with guilt for cheating on his wife after she gave birth to his child - he has decided to plead guilty to all the charges.

    Indicted for small potatoes. They should have started at the top of the list. Much ado about nothing.

    Hello S:

    Prosecutors don't wanna be first, but they don't wanna be last either..  Watch for a flurry of charges.

    I have been wondering when out of spite Trump will post the names of the people on the grand jury, their wife's names and their children's names. He has done stuff like that in the past so I am pretty sure he will do it again. Cheers and happy weekend!

    Each grand juror, the prosecutor and everyone appearing before that body is sworn to secrecy. Unlawful disclosure of grand jury proceedings is a crime under the Penal Law of the State of New York.

    Yet there is a book written by one the attorneys who worked in the office on this case.   
    Witnesses can talk about their testimony. If they could not 
    Cohen's former attorney would have already been arrested.

    They can't talk about what goes on in the Grand Jury room until they either indict or decide on no bill.

    I don't know what book you mean, but talking about the case before it went to the Grand Jury is different than writing about what is going on as the Grand Jury is hearing testimony. This post was edited by Spunky at April 1, 2023 6:46 PM MDT

    OK, then why are there not charges against Cohen's former attorney? He testified and then immediately afterwards talked about it on news shows.

    Did he talk about his testimony or the case in general?
